What Hot Tub Chemicals Do You Need?
While it’s recommended you change your hot tub water every three
months or so, and give it a good cleaning every so often
, it’s still essential
to sanitize the water in between so it doesn’t become a breeding ground for
Test the Water
To keep your hot tub water clean, you first need to know what
chemicals your hot tub water needs; this is where a test kit comes in handy.
Test strips are one of the easiest ways to test and balance your water
accordingly. It’s recommended that you test your hot tub water at least once a
One of the most important hot tub chemicals you need to use is a
sanitizer. Two of the most popular sanitizer options are bromine and chlorine.
Chlorine is cost-effective and easy to manage, but bromine tends to be gentler
on the skin, lasts longer, and has a lower pH than chlorine, making the task of
keeping your spa water balanced even easier.
Balancers are used to adjust the pH and the alkalinity of your
pool water. They also help prevent stains and scale build-up in your spa. Pool
Supply Unlimited has spa balancers from leading spa chemical companies like
Leisure Time and SeaKlear.
Shock is a spa chemical used to break down waste and contaminants
that cause cloudy, foamy water and bad odors. Shock should be added to a pool
once a week as part of your regular hot tub maintenance routine, when the hot
tub has not been used for an extended period or when the free chlorine level is
lower than the total chlorine level.
When spas and hot tubs in outdoor environments are exposed to
elements like rain, water, and other natural materials, it can cause algae and
phosphates to be present in your hot tub. That’s why as part of your spa
maintenance system, we recommend using an algaecide and phosphate remover. We carry
a great selection from Leisure Time, Easy Care, and ClearView.
